Mundakopanishad :

 CHAPTER-2.

SECTION-2.

Mantram-7.  { Description  of  Lower  'Brahmam'  and  mode   of  contemplation  upon  it. }

Discussion : -   "To  know  this  is  to  realize  "BRAHMAM".....

To  know  this,  is  to  realize  the  "Brahmam",  to  fulfil  the  Supreme  goal  of  life.

Here  the  doubt  may  come  in  the  mind  of  the  seeker  whether  by  realizing  the  Spark  of  life  in  us,  we  will  be  at once  realizing  the  infinite  glory  of  the  All-pervading.

This  doubt  is  removed  by  the  firm  assertion  given  here  by  the  "Sruti" that  by  realizing  the  Self  ( jivatma )  in  us  we  will  be  realizing  at  once  the  Total  Self ( Paramatma  ).

Hence  the  word  "Paripasyanti" is  specially  used  in  the  mantram  here.

When  a  bottle  is  broken,  the  bottle-space  in  realizing  its  own  nature,  realizes  at  once  the  nature  of  the  total-space,  not  only  the  vast  space  remaining  now  with  limitation  and  unconditioned.
